I am sooooo single. How do I know this, you might ask? Well, my eating habits tell no lies. What did I have for dinner Friday night? A blizzard from Dairy Queen. Yep, ate it on my commute home from Lewiston at 5pm and that’s it. Dinner tonight? Chicken tenderloins and peaches. Hey, that sounds kinda non-single-ish, you may say…but not really. The kicker for me was where I ate it. I ate the chicken over the sink so I wouldn’t have to dirty a dish and the peaches were directly out of a can – also standing over same said sink. –sigh –
Am I lamenting my singleness? Honestly, it ebbs and flows, but not right now. I’ve made a conscious decision to focus on me for the last four to five years as I’ve finished up my education. After returning to school at the age of 29, I haven’t wanted anything to distract me from completing my Masters. Now, with only months left of my self-imposed selfishness how do I feel? Again, I’m pretty much fine. I wouldn’t change any of the “me” time I’ve had as I’ve gotten to know what I like, dislike, makes me happy, ticks me off, and so forth. Will I ever get married? I don’t know – but what I do know is that I’m not really worried about it. I am fully confident that I can take care and provide for myself (have for the last 10+ years anyway), and there are many things out there that make me happy: my dog, my bazillion nieces and nephews who allow me to hang out with them and spoil them, early mornings before everything wakes up, silence, long drives in my car, reading a book in absolute silence, etc.
Those are my musings for tonight as I prepare for another week at the police department (only two left!) and hit the sack early so I can start the day anew and fresh. Sweet dreams my minions!
